HMT continues to engage regularly with the devolved administrations. The Chancellor met with the devolved administration First Ministers Mark Drakeford MS and Nicola Sturgeon MSP on Thursday 10 November where discussion included cost of living and rising energy costs and the First Ministers had the opportunity to set out their priorities to the Chancellor.

I also met with the Welsh Government’s Finance Minister Rebecca Evans MS on Monday 14 November and also on Thursday 17 November to provide an overview of the current economic situation in the UK and to hear her priorities for the people of Wales.
